We stayed for 1 night en route to Gatwick. The room was very good, clean and with a good TV. We had our own electric heater and the en suite was also clean and functioned well. On the down side, the shower was only tepid (I like a hot shower in the mornings) whilst the adjacent basin hot tap was HOT! The bed was far too soft for our liking and as a result we had a broken nights sleep. Having said all this we paid £18 for the room by advance purchase without breakfast and it was really good value. Dorking centre is only 5-10 minutes walk away so we ate there and walked back as the Frankie & Bennies adjacent resturant was closed.
One more minus was the on site wi-fi, it was £5 for 1 hour and £10 for 24 hours. All we wanted was 10 minutes on line to check our emails and we did not think that spending £5 for that priviledge was good value. To be even handed, as we checked in and went to our room on the first floor, we noticed lumps of fresh earth on the landing & stair carpet, left there by some inconsiderate guest who had just checked in ahead of us. We informed reception and within 5 minutes the vacum cleaner was out and the carpets were restored to pristine condition.
Would I stay there again, probably yes as it represents good value for money and only 55 minutes driving from Gatwick.
